Let’s admit, the Buffalo Bills overachieved in 2018. Sure, the 6-10 record doesn’t suggest a team on the rise, and there are plenty of problems head coach Sean McDermott and Co. will have to address this offseason.
First, that offensive line remains bad and could use upgrades at all five positions. Quarterback Josh Allen needs at least two receiving weapons, preferably three. And it’s time to move on from running back LeSean McCoy, too.
But Buffalo is one of those teams capable of pulling off stunning victories over almost anybody — something they did at times over the course of 2018.
That’s promising. And Allen proved he wasn’t going to be a terrible bust, as many 2018 NFL Draft analysts thought he would. This isn’t to say he’s going to wind up being elite. But it’s looking like that pick will eventually pan out.
Especially if he gets some help around him this offseason.
